Welcome to the forum.

I typed it into Google Images and from that picture up came the thread in this forum, and the 'For Sale Advert' for the car.
Maybe look at the pictures and also the Youtube Clips for the Malaysian Forest Challenge and you will find stuff.

Off Topic.
But nice Zooks.

you would need to put the side gears from the rear diff into your new front diff,the rest is the same assuming the ratios are the same.

If it has ARBs fitted it'll just be a case of swapping the crownwheel onto the ARB and fitting that, measure the backlash and pinion starting torque on the new diff before stripping it and make sure it's set back up to those specs.
